Hi, so I deleted my previous post because it was a really long rant with TMI in it. It was from about 25 days ago I think. At that time my skin was still pretty bad. Long story short, my stats are that I am in my late 20s, I am 5'7", I weigh 120 lb., and I went on accutane for post-birth control acne. My accutane course has been:
First month - 40 mg
Second month - 80 mg
Third month - 80 mg
Fourth month - 120 mg
Right now, I have 3 very very tiny white heads. I do, however, have lots of red marks from old spots, but these are fading. Here is what I can estimate about fade time so far-My forehead cleared right when I started, and the marks from those spots are almost gone now.
My side effects are almost nonexistent, but I am a healthy person. My diet is basically just vegetables, chicken, and fish, a little fruit, and lots and lots of different health supplements. I rarely drink and never smoke. I was sad for the beginning of my course, but that was because my skin was gross.
I hope everyone is having a nice weekend!
